The concept

This exciting competition is sponsored by Phoenix Artz and the winning song will be derived from a public vote. This competition is an amazing opportunity for all bands and musicians to get their music heard by a whole new audience. The publicity for this competition will dovetail with the publicity for the feature film ‘Full Circle’, this will include, social media,(twitter, Facebook) and even Radio and TV interviews. That’s a potential audience of thousands listening to your music!! The concept behind this initiative is to raise funds for production of the feature film ‘Full Circle’. To that end the winning band/musician will also have their video screened at the cast and crew screening of ‘Full Circle’ in the Lighthouse Cinema later this year.

So how exactly does this work?

You submit your song by sending your ‘Soundcloud’ link. You do this by clicking on ‘Apply Now’ button located at the bottom of the page. This will bring you to ‘PayPal’. Here you will fill out the form and pay the €20 entry fee. After you have submitted your song you will be added to the list off entries. You will then receive an email from Phoenix Artz confirming your submission. The closing date for submissions will be Sunday March the 6th. 

The final list of songs will be made public on Monday March the 7th 2016. 

On this date the poles will be open to the public for voting. People can vote at anytime day or night over the coming three weeks. Voters will be able to vote for multiple songs if they so choose.
